I think it's better to use das Volk rather than die Leute here. This sentence sounds political.

I think ‘das Volk’ should be accepted, but ‘die Leute’ is also possible: the sentence (without context) doesn't have to be political.

What is wrong with "Wir müssen die Leute zuhören."?

Zuhören” is intransitive (a bit like the English “to listen”), thus “Leute” needs to be in the dative: “wir müssen den Leuten zuhören”. Without further context, “zuhören” should be accepted too, although, if I understand correctly, that would be a more literal kind of listening, while “auf etwas hören” is more of the heeding kind of listening.
